You should never miss breakfast. Eating breakfast provides you the energy to keep up with the long hours ahead of you. It’s one thing to eat breakfast, and it’s another to eat the right meals. If you need something to power you throughout the day, then a high-protein breakfast is your best shot as it helps greatly to decrease hunger-stimulating hormones.
Below are some protein-packed breakfasts.
1. Cheesy eggwich
This type of sandwich contains about 40% more protein than the typical breakfast sandwiches and also half the saturated fat. Boil an egg and toast a whole-wheat English muffin. Layer half a cup of low-fat cottage cheese on top of the muffin and top it off with the sliced and cooked egg. With about 25 grams of protein, this meal will greatly help to satisfy your cravings and increase your satiety.
2. Cinnamon french toast with yogurt
This French toast contains about 28 grams of protein that can keep you feeling full for hours. Soak a slice of whole-grain bread in a beaten egg and cook in a pan for one minute on each side until lightly browned. Then sprinkle cinnamon or any other spice and serve with yogurt.
3. Protein eggsadilla
This meal contains 35 grams of protein. Combine one egg with two egg whites and scramble in a pan until fully cooked. Then remove the eggs and place them on a whole-wheat tortilla and sprinkle ¼ cup of shredded Montery jack cheese, a tablespoon of salsa, and roll up the tortilla. You can use a low-fat cheese if you want to cut down on fat.
4. Mushroom and tomato omelet
A great way to add vegetables to your protein-packed meal is by eating omelets. With mushroom and tomato omelets, you can add vegetables to your eggs and enjoy other benefits as well. You can also add in other vegetables such as pepper and onions. Combine four egg whites with one egg and beat gently. Cook eggs in a non-stick pan, and once they begin to form along the edges, add ½ cup of low-fat cottage cheese, ½ cup sliced mushrooms and ½ chopped tomato in the center of the omelet.
Start your day properly with these protein-packed breakfasts and you won’t feel the urge to eat a lot during the rest of the day.
